    But this is overlooking the fact that the worlds largest Christain country America is keeping religion alive around the world; with it's Christain religions, the Mormons are one of the worlds fastest growing religions. Now Catholicism may be loosing a grip hold in Ireland; and thank god for that. But religion is alive and well around the world; thanks to America.

    Are you talking about our Aboriginals? I myself loved salad, not long had one with my dinner, that went well with my BBQ Roo too.

    Oh but in Europe that is full of big old churches, and cathedrals, where religion was dying. It's the worlds largest Christain country America, that is breathing fresh air back into them and keeping religion alive, around the world. I myself whom are not religus, do not feel threatend by this wave of revival. I myself belive in evolution, but then it never really killed God either.

    But overall around the world crazy religions are on the rise in third world countries while western countries and people decline in population and are displaced by populations that do cling very heavily to religion.

    So really, I doubt religion is going away any time soon.

    Why thank you, and there are many diffrent dialects of English too, and many diffrent thoughts opinions, and points of view; just as the gay communities have never been one. icon_wink.gif

    Well, he has to...it's a cultural thing. It doesn't necessarily imply that he means what he says.
